    Article Synopsis

    Commercial warehouse” as a label is broadly used to describe a number of types of commercial space typically offered for lease or rent.  For purposes of this article, we will use Five (5) main categories.

    General Office/Warehouse

    Typically grade level, this type of building is suited to businesses that provide a product and need to receive materials/items and ship out materials/items which may be at grade level or at dock high. The dock-high loading requirement with smaller freestanding buildings is usually facilitated thru use of in ground dock truck wells where the truck backs down a ramp to adjust for the height of the shipping container.

    Bulk Distribution

    Used for the distribution of palletized products in large volume, these buildings have true 4’ dock high loading with multiple doors, high clear height and fire protection systems.

    Heavy Manufacturing

    With grade level overhead doors and ample outside storage yard, these buildings often have large overhead cranes, heavy power and high clear heights.

    Flex office/warehouse (aka Service Center Space)

    Heavy office ratio and  air-conditioned and heated areas used for tech or assembly are common with Flex space.  High parking ratios and generally higher end business park settings are also popular with this type.

    Truck Terminal w/Cross Dock

    Used to transfer goods quickly from container to container, these buildings are usually very shallow and long to allow for a very high number of offloading spaces and overhead doors.  Additionally, an abundance of trailer storage area and staging yard is normally required.

    These are some of the main categories of buildings in Commercial Warehouses which are found for Lease.

    Article Synopsis

    What is commercial warehouse  for lease?  What is commercial warehouse for rent?  They are the same and they are different.  “Commercial” is just a description of the property to indicate an exclusion of residential uses.  “For rent” and “for lease” while basically synonymous, “lease” actually refers to a contractual agreement between a tenant and landlord.  “Warehouse” has many meanings in the sense that a “warehouse” can be used for many purposes and in many manners.  Here are few examples of Commercial Warehouse for Lease:

    • Distribution WarehouseTypically dock high warehouse with fire protection sprinkler systems and warehouse clear heights over 24’.  The high clear is to accommodate pallet racking.  Users of distribution space normally require minimal office finish.
    • Flex WarehouseWith a higher percentage of office finish, Flex Space is combination of warehouse and office finish, sometimes 50% of each.   Warehouse Renters of this space can be high tech, assembly and light manufacturers.
    • Manufacturing Industrial Warehouse: For me, the word industrial conveys images of heavy cranes and steel being moved, modified and shipped.  Manufacturing Warehouses often are crane served with overhead bridge cranes or jib-cranes.  The buildings are chiefly made of metal and require heavy power.

    These are just a few examples.
